The Marmite of beers - you'll either love it or spit it out in disgust. Worth a try, definately - although I think if I were to drink more than one bottle, I would have serious acid indigestion from the strong cherry flavour. Not to be confused with silly teenager's alcopops however, this is a real beer, not just alcoholic cherryade. Certainly interesting and pretty reasonable for those "I fancy something different" moments.

Saeglopur (483) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 21, 2015
375 ml bottle from Beer Store Vienna.
Wine red body, with a small, pink head.
Aroma mainly of sweet cherries, with slight barnyard.
Taste is sweet, salty and slightly sour, also mainly of cherries.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sweet and salty, with cherries.

OK, but much too sweet for my liking. Also no real complexity or variety. Surely not a bad beer, but not what I want from a Lambic.

Wojt0k (40) - Łódź, POLAND - JAN 18, 2015
Aromat przyjemny, oczywiście silnie wiśniowy. W smaku również wiśnie przyjemnie kwaskowe. Praktycznie bez posmaku, gorycz wręcz trudna do wyczucia, pozostaje chwilę kwaskowość, delikatna wytrawność.

Chocolate cherry and licorice with a slight sour twang. Medicinal/mineral cherry taste which is pleasing. Light bodied and slight carbonation. Yum ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HenriqueBraga (93) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 11, 2015
Cerveja vermelha intensa com aromas fortes de cereja e outras frutas vermelhas sem ser enjoativo. Amargor e corpo baixos. Retrogosto doce, persistente e refrescante.

Sjohnh (287) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Smells like cherries, looks like cherries, tastes like cherries. Fairly light body with no lasting head but a refreshing trace of carbonation. Sweet, but well balanced against the sour tang. I like sour cherry so this works OK for me.

mintzmeet (262) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Beautiful thick creamy head, smells like fruit champagne. Interesting cherry tannin like flavors, wine notes. Like the framboise, this lambic is a nice sparkling beverage, although the alcohol is a bit more prominent in this one.
